ACTE Board of Directors Names Richard Crum President and Greeley Koch As head of Global Centre For Research and Education
In a related action, ACTE’s Board of Directors also named Greeley Koch, Director of Strategic Development for the Acquis Consulting Group, as head of the association’s Global Centre For Research and Education. This position was vacated by Richard Crum as he took the office of President. Also a former ACTE President and board member, Koch has substantial experience in legislative activity, association growth, and international development. He was president when ACTE successfully challenged the TSA on the safety issue of electronic passports and led the industry in pandemic awareness in working with the World Heath Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“Today’s board action brings two strong, well-respected leaders into the forefront of the association,” said Susan Gurley, ACTE’s Executive Director. “Together with other ACTE board members, Richard Crum and Greeley Koch will support the interests of our members and sponsors through increasingly relevant programs and expanded networking for professional and business growth.”
That course of action includes a full educational agenda for the fall. ACTE is moving forward with plans for its next Global Education Conference, which is slated for October, in Prague. Other events, such as Executive Forums, are booked for the U.S., Latin America, and the Asia-Pacific Education Conference in August. These will emphasize options and strategies to support economic recovery through business travel.
